During the COVID-19 pandemic, in-person use of the libraries is limited to students, faculty and staff with current Oberlin College IDs who are following ObieSafe guidelines. In Terrell Main Library, Mudd Center, users are welcome to pick up and drop off materials (see library hours), pick up printing, grab food at Azariah’s, or to visit the ID card office. Limited study spaces are available for both reserved and drop in use. The upper floors are open for browsing, but a shifting project may make it hard to find material. Ask staff for assistance if you can't find an item.
